Thank you for your question..
If two individuals are paying for the land, then there are IHT implications as the amounts covering share of the other 7 would be deemed a potentially exempt transfer and seven year rule would apply (assuming two are paying on behalf of 9 individuals).
More information on gifts and IHT implications can be found here
As beneficial owners of the land, all 9 would be able to utilise gains allowance of £11,100 each to cover gain on sale of land and pay CGT at the rate of 10%, 20% or a combination of both depending on individual's taxable income in the year of sale.
I hope this is helpful and answers your question.

Thank you very much for that advice. Would you be kind enough to let me know how much tax would be paid via a Deed of Trust. Very many thanks, Mandy
Thank you for your reply.
Lets say 2 individuals pay for land costing £90,000. they have effectively gifted (7/9x90) £70,000.
Provided they survive for 7 years from the date of making the gifts, the gift itself is out of scope of IHT.
Now we come to CGT -
The plot of land is sold for say £225,000 giving rise to a capital gain of £135,000 equivalent to £15,000 per owner.
Assuming all are basic rate taxpayers, then CGT payable would be (15,000-11,100) £3,900 x 10% = £390 per owner
in total (390 x 9) £3,510
